Beadie Finzi and Murray produced pic, which was exec produced by Jess Search. It was initially commissioned by the doc department at the U.K.’s Channel Four.
Repping the film in tandem, Submarine’s Josh Braun and RingTheJing Entertainment’s Roger Kass brought Wellspring and Court TV together at Sundance.
